Well I finally managed to get a copy of the Epic Armageddon rulebook…
This sounds like I was desperate to get a copy and that I had searched high and low! Well the reality was when the rulebook came out I did try and get a copy, but my local GW had none in stock (allegedly they had sold them to all the staff). I know I could have purchased a copy by Mail Order, but when I did my last GW Mail Order I got some fantasy orcs instead!
Today I popped into one of my local GW stores and they had a few copies, so I thought oh go on get a copy, so I did.
It is really really nicely put together and I was impressed.
What was also nice was that I was only charged £20 (rather than the list price of £25).
The manager complained as too many people were buying it and he was having to order more copies!
A friend of mine (in a different GW store) was initially charged £40, then £60 came up on the till before eventully he was charged £20 also!
Managed to see a blister of the new Ork Trukks (or battlewagons as they are referred to) and though most are new, some are conversions of the older models (as we were promised) and it does seem a little strange to see the Flakwagon Trukk as a whole casting as opposed to the three part I am use to.
There is one new Codex which has me as nearly excited (if not more so) than the Daemonhunters Codex and that is the Witch Hunters Codex.
Having see lots of nice preview pictures on the GW website of the new miniatures this looks like it could be another really nice release. The fact that a lot of the models are interchangeable with Daemonhunters means less models to buy.
